With funeral costs rising far in excess of the annual rate of inflation, it is an unfortunate fact that for many families budgeting for a funeral by traditional means may no longer be sufficient to cover the cost.
According to the Sun Life Cost of Dying Report 2016, average funeral costs have almost doubled over the last 10 years rising from just over £2,000 in 2006 to almost £4,000 in 2016. The report also predicts that by 2021, the cost of an average standard funeral will be in the region of £5,400.
Beneficial Trust & Will Company, working in partnership with Silver Clouds Later Life Planning Ltd, guarantee that no matter how long our plan holders live, or however expensive a funeral is when they pass away, there will never be anything further to pay by those left behind towards the funeral directors fees and services.
An overview of our Plans
The table below provides a summary of the different plan options and what each includes. Though they all cover cremation in their standard form, each (with the exception of the Direct Cremation and Your Simplest) can also be tailored for burial.
Our range is divided into 2 categories - Basic Plans and Inclusive Plans.
Basic Funeral Plans (exclude disbursements/3rd party fees allowance):
Designed for those whose budget is limited but who wish to still make some provision to reduce the financial and emotional burden that their funeral might place on those left behind.
Inclusive Funeral Plans (include disbursement/3rd party fees allowance):
Designed for those wanting to secure the greatest possible protection against funeral expenses, our inclusive plans not only guarantee the funeral directors services but they also include a generous allowance towards disbursements/3rd party fees.
